Topshop Shmopshop

So, this is something a bit different as I haven't really done anything like this before, but on Friday I had the devastating (exaggeration, I think not) realisation that my not-so-cheap brown satchel from Topshop had ripped! *cue dramatic music*

I have been back at sixth form for all of 11 weeks and I bought this bag about 4 days before it started, therefore I have had this bag for a total of 81 days, which may I add, is purposely build to carry things! However, it seems Topshop don't believe bags are supposed to do this, as mine has broken. I wouldn't be as bothered, if it had cost me £10 from Primark, but Topshop I would expect better quality. So it is now hanging on by a thread and may snap any second, sad times.

My overall review for this bag would be 4 out of 5 because it has two compartments of good size plus an extra zip in the main section, the quality of the material is thick and therefore I know it's not going to get any holes in the bottom and I won't lose anything. It is just the stitching of the strap and it does mark quite easily but I think that can add to the look of it.

If you have also purchased this bag, let me know what you think


  1. Beautiful bag! That's such a shame about the quality. I live in New Zealand, and sadly we don't have topshop here, but i do read a lot of blogs and youtube videos so i know that a lot of people feel that topshop is over prices, but generally good quality. Sad to hear that's not always the case! I also just wanted to say that i really love your blog layout - its really nice :)


  2. my best friend lives in New Zealand! she moved there 3 and half years ago and i know i would definitely sacrifice Topshop to live there haha! it sounds so lovely! It is definitely over priced but I really love their stuff

  3. and thankyou! glad you like it!
